Abstract

In comparison with other chemistries, little has been reported on sulfur-containing plasma polymers; reasons include low volatility or high toxicity of monomers. Here, we report on plasma polymerization of dimethyl sulfoxide, by itself and its co-polymerization with 1,7-octadiene to generate S-containing plasma polymers. Results show dominance of S-S, S-H, and S-C with small percentages of SO and SO2. Upon storage in air there were no observable changes to the oxidation states of the S atoms in these plasma polymers, whereas the hydrocarbon component underwent oxidative changes. Methods were studied to oxidize the initial sulfur-containing surface groups, but approaches such as H2O2 treatment post-deposition and electrical biasing during deposition did not affect the oxidation states of the incorporated S.
